The reviews for this film have really been all over the place and seeing as I didn't think the Green Lantern was actually that bad Bob saying its (very slightly) better won't change my plans to go see it after work tomorrow.
Yesh, I haven't seen you rage that much since the Green Lantern review. From the sound of it, it seen this year isn't good for Spider-man per say (well I don't know what going with him in the comic but I do know that Ultimate Spider-man is aweful).
Either way it look like my question had been answer to wheather to watch this or Prometheus if I'm going to the cinema any time soon before The Dark Knight Rises.
Woah, that's harsh. I almost feel bad about it now but... i liked it. I really really liked it. Maybe more than i liked Sam Raimis first Spiderman. Uh... so... i guess i have terrible taste in movies. Guess i have to work on that.
Seems to me all the complaints have been based on your conceptions of classical spider man. i did not see any complaints on the movie as a movie itself apart from CGI and the lizard character. you go thru saying peter parker is emo, skater, slacker. you would have prefered a single stereotyped character? it seems to me he is more of a normal person, more grounded on reality. a real person =/= stereotype. i dunno, it just seems silly to bash a movie because it bashes your notions of spider man, such as uncle bens death and his parents and relations.
i would not take this review as is people. it stinks of fanboy wishes being broken, causing an aggravation of his opinion on the movie.
I go to see nearly every super-hero movie, sometimes just out of morbid curiosity. But I was thinking about giving this one a pass completely. everything about the trailers and promotion of this movie has convinced me that it's likely to suck. I keep wishing it didn't happen, so that the rights would revert to Marvel, who have been doing a really good job with their own movies. Bob venting this much bile though has me wondering, could it really be that bad? Hopefully, it'll hit the second run theater soon. So it won't matter much to the studio's profits when I go to see how bad it is just so I can make fun of it later.
I was hoping for Andrew Garfield's sake that it would be good. I was actually hoping that it would be good so I could feel a bit smug at the people who said (it will be terrible, because we "know" films and we "know" better than you).
